When it comes to certain positions in the NFL, many people tend to use the same tired old clichés when describing a player, especially when it’s out of the norm for the position.
So far this year, Adam Thielen has been absolutely balling as he became just the 2nd player in NFL history with 100 receiving yards in each of his team’s first 6 games of the season.
The Minnesota Vikings WR is easily one of the best wideouts in the entire league, but many continue to use the same tired clichés that are used for every single White WR that has ever existed in the league.
Ryan Clark wants that to stop.
The former NFL safety took to Twitter on Sunday and asked people to not disrespect the man and give him his proper due as a straight baller.
Please don’t use “Smart” “Hard working” “dependable””gym rat” when speaking of Adam Thielen. Dude is a baller & can do it all. So dang talented
